how did you "hide" your pregnancy for those first 12 weeks from family and friends? Especially at birthdays and social occasions where you would usually be seen having a couple drinks?

How did you hide your little secret?

I just drank lemonade and pretended it had vodka in it lol I found most people never even asked what was in my drink!

I'd have plain ginger ale and refer to it as "my usual" - as in "DH, could you get me another glass of my usual" or " just the usual for me thanks" and nobody blinked so much as an eye.

I had dh pour me a small wine (like a half glass so it looked like I had been drinking) & then I just carried it around while talking. People never seem to notice how much (or how little) you drink! I always made sure they knew I was the designated driver so my glass couldn't be topped up (another excuse for drinking slowly).

We found out not long before xmas.. we told our parents and close friends but the rest of the family had no idea. We used the excuse "we dont drink when we are out and have the kids" (which is half true, but usually we would still have one or 2). It was more trying to hide the debilitating all day sickness xmas day. Im lucky in that Im not a big drinker anyway, so nobody really bats an eyelid if i dont have a drink.

I didn't end up waiting lol. We told hubbies best friend because we needed to find a good doctor in town, then I told Mum because I thought if friends knew before mum then that was a bit slack so I rang her too After that word just spread lol

I just used my normal excuse that I was driving and hubby was drinking. Everyone knows I'm mega paranoid about having a drink if I'm driving and the girls in our family are always the designated drivers softie our hubbies so I went unnoticed.

I'm driving, or I just pretend to drink by carrying wine around and eventually chucking it.
This week I have a big family dinner so I might have a few lemonades/ginger ales sans vodka and then say I'm driving. Fingers crossed it works!
